Biografie (woord)

Anthony Friscia's research covers small carnivores, both extant and extinct. He is particularly interested in questions about ecomorphology and community structure. He has done field work in Utah, Pakistan, Egypt, and Kenya. He is a member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, the American Society of Mammalogists, the Paleontological Society, Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology, and the National Science Teachers Association. He is currently faculty at the University of California - Los Angeles, where he has won a number of teaching awards for his work teaching evolution to non-science majors and human anatomy, and where he also works to shape their science general education curriculum. He has been an invited speaker and researcher at recent Darwin Anniversary celebrations and workshops on the La Brea tar seeps.

Quote

"The language and many of the chosen chapters are written for the scientist; specifically, the paleomammalogist that is interested in select details. For this audience and this audience alone, the volume is without question a worthwhile addition to the library."
Richard A. Kissel, American Paleontologist
